Gallery A.S. is a moveable feast and its new exhibition is setting up shop in what was once the Sydney headquarters of Paramount Pictures in Surry Hills. Motion / Pictures explores the junction of art and the moving image, highlighting the common roots of cinema in art. The slow, show-all charm of early art on film never really went away; matte-painting masters and their digital successors kept you looking at the painted image on the screen, even if their art was hidden in the illusion. Motion / Pictures is taking filmic inspiration from its art-deco Paramount surrounds to present work from artists that sits with the building that it stands in.

The exhibition promises to cover, allude to and explore all the facets of movie culture, be it sci-fi, art-deco or video tape. Curated by Joseph Allen Shea, the show will feature the time-shaping Daniel Askill, along with Andrew Long and Mel O'Callaghan. Jacob Ciocci will present the low-key video Dark Green, while Anthony Lister's rough-edged super heroes will make a showing. Also contributing are slick embroiderer Tim Moore, immersive environmentalist Dan Moynihan and the graphite-loving Sam Smith.

The opening reception will take place on Thursday, August 25 from 6pm.
